Sadness Overflow From Fans As Future Music Festival Asia's Appeal For Permit Denied

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Guess it's sadness now that they appeal to have Future Music Festival Asia 2015 (FMFA15) here in Singapore was unsuccessful. My hopes of seeing and hearing The Prodigy and AVICII Live is shattered!

Why?! Why?! Why do drugs when you can enjoy music and dance the night away?! 

Because of all these bad past, Singapore has been denied to having a blast?! I was still hoping that the party would still be allowed. Well, now we can only see what other alternatives Lifescape Singapore has installed for us...

Here's the statement I was sent regarding the non-issuance of permit for Future Music Festival Asia 2015: 

We are extremely disappointed that our appeal to the Ministry of Home Affairs to organise Future Music Festival Asia 2015 (FMFA15) in Singapore has been unsuccessful. We can confirm that we have received the official rejection of our appeal. 
FMFA firmly stands behind our goal of creating a drug-free event for our festival goers to enjoy. Despite having put in place a robust event, security, safety and medical management plan which has been developed alongside both local and international experts with a combined 50 years of experience in running similar large-scale events, our Public Entertainment License has not been granted. The plans that have been developed far exceeds international standards. 

We emphasise that the safety and security of our festival goers are of utmost importance and will continue to be our number one priority. Regarding concerns the authorities may have about the drug-related incidents that took place in Malaysia last year, we reiterate that these were isolated incidents that took place outside Singapore, which cannot and do not carry any implication that FMFA is linked to drug use or drug abuse. 

In light of this development, we are assessing all options and formulating our next course of action. Full details of this will be made available over the next few days. 

To the fans there are no words in this world that can describe our eternal gratitude to you. We called, and you answered. Your response to #KeepFMFAAlive has brought tears to all of us at FMFA. We are humbled, and we are grateful. 

In the last 48 hours you showed the world that music truly unites. Music has the ability to unite people from across different cultures, background and races. Music has the ability to forge unity, friendship and love. Music itself is noble. Music can be a change for good. And over the past 48 hours you have been a living testament to that very belief. We are doing everything we can to work out a viable solution to this issue. --- Livescape Singapore Pte Ltd​
